The Signal Flow Graph Method of Goal Programming

The signal flow graph (SFG) is a way of expressing linear algebraic equations. Thus, SFG has been effectively applied to solve sparse linear systems. In this paper the authors apply SFG to solve the goal programming problem. The SFG approach to goal programming has many promising advantages-ease of manipulating sparse matrices, conceptually simple ways to explain sensitivity analysis, and the graphical illustration of the solution process.
